Sailing boats in action at yourboatpix

yourboatpix - The sailing boat picture exchange

Important - Future of yourboatpix

yourboatpix has run without any attention, still less maintenance, for some years now. I am no longer in a position to give it the time and energy it needs to update it.

I would be happy to transfer it to another owner at no cost, subject to agreeing terms. The technology is php and mysql and the code is a long way from exemplary!

It is not small: there are some 5300 pictures occupying 13G of space. Contact in first instance.

Plan (unless taken over)

  • Site will run as now until Christmas 2019
  • Then read-only (i.e. no more uploads) until Easter 2020
  • Then backed up and closed

I am no longer on any sailing forums so I would be grateful if anyone seeing this would post a note so others are made aware.

Shout "I'll put it on yourboatpix!"

Picture this: two boats sailing towards one another. It's going to be a close pass. Someone goes below for a camera. It's a great shot but by now the boats are passing and soon will be opening the gap at 12kts. What do you do?
